  Ever since Milan Lucic beat Ryan Miller out for a loose puck, the Buffalo Sabres and their fanbase have been crying out for more toughness, for more accountability. Apparently they realized that Patrick Kaleta is softer than a pool of Charmain Ultra. So what do they do? They hire that dude from the band Saliva and Brave Steve Ott. The idea was that those two would keep the big, mean bullies like the Bruins at bay... or something. Anyways, apparently it's not working out too well for Buffalo. Last night, Nathan Gerbe got boarded pretty bad by Hurricane Drayson Bowman. SOme of his teammates decided to have a little lip action with Bowman. And then he gets manhandled by NHL referree Dan O'Halloran. Damn. Hey, Sabres, how do you feel about all that? After the game it's rumored thatn goaltender Ryan Miller called O'Halloran a "piece of ****" and then wrote some bad poetry about it. Must suck when NHL refs are pushing your tea...

GARTH: The Blessing and The Curse

The good thing is Buffalo’s top line is scoring all the goals right now. The bad thing is Buffalo’s top line is scoring all the goals right now. Call it a blessing, and, a curse. Hodgson (3), Pominville (3) and Vanek (2) have scored 80% of the goals for the Sabres. The 26-19-29 trio has potted eight of the Sabres 10 goals in the first three games. Were it not for...

Harrison sparks Hurricanes to another win over Sabres

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- With Ryan Miller standing tall at the other end, the Carolina Hurricanes regrouped late and focused on getting pucks to the net with traffic in front. It worked to perfection.

GARTH: Loosey Goosey

The Buffalo Sabres lost 6-3 to the Carolina Hurricanes. A pathetic defensive efford by all 12 forwards and 6 D. The discipline that the team showed in wins vs. Philly and Toronto was flushed down the drain. Jhonas Enroth now 0-9-3 in his last 12 decisions. He gave up career high four goals in the second period. Tyler Myers, Robyn Regehr and the Sabres D corps didn't...

Milan Lucic whoops Matt Carkner in fight

Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic is an absolute force; he’s the ultimate power forward.  He will take on anyone in a fight, and can still be productive on offense.  He scored 26 goals last year, and 30 goals the year before.  Lucic just utterly destroyed Carkner in this fight, despite both of them being about 6’4″ 230.  Carkner went down in the TKO, and I’m sure he...

Sabres-Hurricanes Preview
